Day of 5 "Free from Striving" @illustratedfaith devotional "Free to Flourish"
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I think we all have a bit of Mary & Martha in us. One that wanted to make sure everything is done, while the other just longs to soak in the presence of Jesus.
I personally identify with Mary, especially at this stage in who I am. Junk in this life can fade away while I just spend time with Him. Sure things need to get done. You can't be irresponsible. But that sink of dishes can wait, while in get in some good ole time with my BFF. Never ever feel guilty for spending time with Him. No better place to be.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42
